Classic diner fare at Nordstrom City Creek

Forget the fashionable clothes and shoes at Nordstrom, I’m wondering if I can get great salad (like I used to) at the new store opening soon in the new City Creek Center.

John Clem, Nordstrom’s vice president of restaurants, told me that I will.

In fact, there are eight salads on the menu at the new Sixth and Pine restaurant inside the downtown store, which will open on Thursday, March 22 along with the rest of the glitzy mall.

Besides salads, the restaurant will offer breakfast (all day), soups, hot and cold sandwiches and classic diner fare such as roasted chicken, fish and chips and meatloaf. There will be daily specials and, of course, homemade desserts. Prices range from $9 to $17.

Sixth and Pine will be located on the second floor and will have north-facing windows that likely will offer some sort of city views, Clem said during a telephone interview from company headquarters in Seattle on Tuesday. It will seat about 130 people, including bar seating at an open kitchen that extends the length of the restaurant.

Nordstrom introduced its Sixth and Pine contemporary diner concept about a year ago in Wilmington, Delaware. Since then it has added them to stores in Nashville (pictured here), Cleveland and Los Angeles. Besides Salt Lake, two more are planned in 2012.

"Salt Lake City is a great candidate for the theme," said Clem, who should know. He started his career 22 years ago as the manager of the Nordstrom Cafe in Crossroads Mall.

Unlike it’s sister restaurants, the Salt Lake City Sixth and Pine will be closed on Sundays and will not serve beer or alcohol. The landlord, afterall, is the Mormon church.
